Simon I do...

Hi everyone,

I'm sharing another card I have made for this weeks Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, which, this time round, is, 'Rock the Techniques'...

Simon Monday Challenge Blog

I have just discovered this ridiculously amazing product called 'Brusho', and just cannot get enough of it, so thought  I would use my new found 'techniques' with that to fit the challenge theme.

And here's my card...

I really can't say how brilliant 'Brusho' is, it's these little pots of intense 'colour crystals'. that when come into contact with water, just explode with vibrant colour!  I can't believe I have only just found them.  I love making water colour backgrounds, and these are just beyond perfect for that.  And that's how I started this card.  I sprinkled a few granules (you use the teeniest amount) of my chosen colours (turquoise, yellow, orange, and scarlet) onto some watercolour card, and spritzed with water.  I hope you'll agree, the effect is just tremendous!  Once my background was dry, I thought it looked like a cool galaxy, so straight away reached for this awesome new stamp set from Wplus9, 'Lucky Stars'.  I stamped out this superb sentiment in Versamark Ink and heat embossed using Ranger's 'Black Sparkle' powder.  I also stamped out a few of the stars from the same set and heat embossed also.  I added a few little silver pearl clusters using my Viva Decor 'Pearl pen' just to enhance the 'space' vibe...and that was that as I really didn't feel the card needed anything else.

So it's fair to say I am obsessed with Brusho already!  I just can't wait to learn more about it and, the fun part - practise, practise, practise :)

Thanks for stopping by.
